Anyone know of a reputable spot to install coils and EDFC besides LMW? I've used LMW in the past for maintenance and since they got rid of their performance shop, I'm not sure if they have the manpower to install coils/EDFC. I called SP Engineering and the guy quoted me $450 not including alignment. Is that about right or is it too high? I'm around the Long Beach/Cerritos area.

Thanks!

PS - I did a search, and everything points to LMW or individual members (Malek). I'd be more than happy to go with Malek or another reputable member, but I need these installed next weekend and I wouldn't want to force this upon anyone if they are already booked.

Does he do suspension installs as well? With a name like Music Box, I would think he just did mobiletronic stuff.

$400......hm, I am not sure what's the market value for coils/edfc.
He is very well known on clublexus and a lot of 2 Gen IS/3 Gen GS/2 Gen 3 Gen LS people go to him...

Installing coils and EDFC isn't the funnest thing in the world but damn, I'd do it for less than those quotes haha.

Hell maybe 2TGEU would do it for a much better price.

^^ Haha I couldn't even install an AFC back then. Wanna do this install?
haha yea those were the days indeed. I installed about 7 Safcs and you now surpass me by leaps and bounds. Funny how time flies and how many good friends you make. I am down for this install if you are. Some money for a new jack, since my old one is going to an old friend:rolleyes:

wow i guess suspension installs have gone up.

did my own in my garage in a few hours. edfc is a bit more of a pain due to removing of panels and whatnot to run the cables.
